This Woman Celebrates Divorce With a Bang — by Blowing up Her Wedding Dress


This is one marriage that ended with a bang.

A Texas woman celebrated her divorce by blowing up her wedding dress on the family’s farm in LaCoste, 25 miles west of San Antonio, KSAT reported.

Kimberly Santleben-Stiteler obtained a divorce Friday in Medina County after 14 years of marriage to Henry Jordan Stiteler. On Saturday night, the 43-year-old celebrated with her parents, sisters, and brother-in-law by filling her wedding dress with 20 pounds of Tannerite, an explosive target material, KTRK reported. Santeben-Stiteler used a rifle to take a shot at the dress, positioned 200 yards away. Her shot was true, and her wedding dress went up in smoke.
